80% of the poor in africa are rural farmers. 96% of them are doing rain-fed agriculture. they're all competing with each other; they're all making very low margins, making enough to survive, but not enough to get out of poverty. so kickstart designs low cost irrigation pumps enabling them to grow high value crops throughout the year so you can make a lot of money. it's all very well to have a whole lot of small innovations, but unless we can scale it up enough to where we are talking about millions of farmers, we're not going to solve their biggest challenge. this is precisely where the kind of finance that citi is giving us, is enabling us to scale up on a much more rapid pace. when we talk to the farmers and ask them what's the most important thing.
first of all they say we can feed our families. secondly, we can send our children to school. it's really that first step that allows them to get out of poverty and most importantly have money left over to plan for the future they want. reports: williams may ha >> robin williams autopsy report reveals he was sober when he died. but linda yee reports williams may have learned about a way to

was concerned about his wristwatches. he may have gleaned information on suicide from a movie he made several years ago. williams character played a father who discovered his son's accidental death from auto erotic asphyxiation. then he fixes it to look like hanging with a belt. the belt and towel were exactly what investigators found when they discovered his body. investigators asked robin williams wife if he had any history of auto erotic asphyxia. he said no. they checked his iphone and computers and did not find a suicide note. linda yee, kpix5. williams wife says that she thought robin was in a good mood the night before he died because he took his ipad with him. she thought to read or watch tv. something he had not done in months. well tonight, there is a

political science has trumped sound science. >> reporter: there is a different approach. at anonelli's. consumers buy air chilled chicken. they raise their birds differently. from egg to chick to farm to slaughter house. >> i can't eat a chicken that has had chlorine bath. that is what makes us different. >> reporter: they blast freshly slaughtered birds with very cold air to low their temperature. that is how it is done in europe. >> they are in cold air. >> reporter: a whole chilled chicken costs about $2 more per pound. even so, this mom might just consider it. >> i would be willing to pay more money for it. >> there is nothing on the label to tell you the chicken has been bathed in chlorine, you can only look for air chilled. let's move on. talk a little about the weather. >> let's do that. >> it cooled off.
